szimat 6 Posted February 10, 2016 Share Posted February 10, 2016 (edited) Hi, few weeks ago there was an announcement that Emby Server will (is already) support Intel Quick Sync for transcoding. This is basically I believe the biggest step forward in terms of transcoding that can be achieved. Even a low budget Intel HW with QS support will be able to decode heavy streams with ease, probably even multiple ones. Running a Braswell based board based on N3150 SoC would do an incredible job, why waste money on expensive, load, power hungry hw like i3-i5-i7 when an N3150 can do the job just fine? @@Luke is there any progress on this on Ubuntu Server (14.04.x LTS or later), running kernel 3.9 or 4.4.0? Is it already working and ready for testing? If not, what would you say, when can we expect to have this feature enabled? Important to have this support available on kernel version higher then 4.3, as there is a fix starting from kernel 4.3 that with previous kernels prior 4.3 caused serious problems on Braswell based boards. Prior to that, a patch needed. Edited February 10, 2016 by szimat 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
